Nestled in the north east corner of what was once the vicarage garden the house now known as The Oratory was once The National School. It was built in 1820 with a grant from the National Society. It had flagged floors and loose desks and catered for 20 children. Children were admitted from an early age some only two years old. There is on record one child who attended the school at the tender age of one year eight months. They usually left school at 12.
This school was in use until 1928 when the new Council School was built.
